What Are Anchovies?


Anchovies are small round-bodied seawater (marine) fish,  found in temperate waters worldwide, being rare in very cold or very warm seas and are particularly plentiful in the Mediterranean.   Classed as an "oily" fish they reach a maximum length of 23cm/9-inches but contain a lot of small bones which when cooked are edible and a source of calcium. They are one of the few fish which are more often eaten preserved than fresh in many cuisines worldwide.


When eaten fresh, the flesh has a delicious flavour and soft texture however  as mentioned above, they are more frequently sold persevered in tins, jars and as concentrate in tubes,  all of which preservations make the flavour is pungent and salty and the flesh very soft. Fresh, they are an excellent choice to serve  as a starter and preserved anchovies are used in many recipes including fish, meat, poultry and sauces. See also Anchovies origin uses recipes.
